About the Programs:
The Healing Patch: A Center for Loss and Hope for Grieving Children and Their Families is a peer support program designed specifically for children and their families who have suffered the loss of a significant loved one. The Healing Patch offers a safe environment where grieving children and their families can discover they are not alone in their grief by interacting with others who have encountered similar losses. By sharing memories and experiences, families discover that what they are going through is normal and that hope and healing are possible.
